Heute haben wir einen Strandtag am Wrightsville Beach mit Arlene, Bonnie und Bill gemacht.
Filled with propane then moved on to Wilmington and walked the water front. We noticed on the way out of town a sign for the Battleship North Carolina, we toured the ship for 2 hours. Because of the late time we stay at Wal-Mart in North Myrtle Beach SC.
Mahi taco & wings
With the map of my new map, I decided that it was time to head the ocean. I messaged some people and headed to Wilmington. My hosts, Ryan, Angie, and their two small boys, suggested I check out this cemetery. It was pretty interesting, but a little disappointed to find out that it was a self guided tour, as was most of the attractions in Wilmington.Read more
I was thinking about going to see the battleship, but instead I went with Angie and her kids to see the replica of the boat docked there for the weekend. I figured i probably would never have a chance to see one again anytime soon.
Before heading for camp, we stopped at the Blue Surf Cafe in Wilmington for lunch. Or dinner ... it was about 3:00. Though it looked inauspicious sitting in a small strip mall, our meal was stupendous. Baja shrimp tacos with spicy greens and chipotle mayonnaise on the most amazing fresh-made corn tortillas. On the side was a chili-mango and radish salsa on mizuma greens which has to be tasted to be believed. It was worth the wait.
We weighed going off and doing tourist things, but decided just to set up camp and relax. Thunderstorms are promised (in fact we are listening to some distant thunder right now), and we were VERY hot and tired. Heather was so hot, she spilled apple cider all over, and GORDON was so hot he didn't know whether he wanted a beer or not. Heather RAN to the trunk and grabbed and emergency IPA.
The campground is about 5 miles from Wrightsville Beach, and we have a lovely private spot nestled in sand and gnarly coastal pines. It is finally cooling off and the thunder has grown to occasionally shake the entire trailer.
MORHING UPDATE: We awoke at 6:00 to a veritable concert of barnyard bellows. A VERY active and persistent rooster who sounded unlike any rooster I've ever heard. Being a North Carolina rooster, perhaps he was doing a rebel yell. Not to be outdone a very agitated dog was shouting counterpoint machine gun style. A poor beleaguered turkey, obviously straining for any space in the serenade, filled any silence with a soft gobble. Gordon is sure he heard a pig adding his disapproving grunts but i must have missed those when i plugged my ears. We finally gave it up and got out of bed. We soon realized it must have been our angels alerting us to get up and LOOK AT THE WEATHER!Read more
Oh holy cow! Hurricane Joaquin is hot on our tails. Will we make it to Charleston before being swept out to sea? We figure we have today to enjoy Charleston and then we need to hightail it inland. WHEEEEEEEEE!
A little picnick, paddling with alligator, rescuing a turtle.. a saturday with friends.
Malý piknik, preháňanie sa po jazere na pádlovačiku a záchranárska akcia pre korytnačku.. taká obyčajná sobota s priateľmi.
